WA State Licensing: Renew - Corporation or LLC

File a corporation or LLC annual report

Corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLC) must file an annual report each year to stay in good standing with the Washington Secretary of State.


Effective January 1, 2018, BLS no longer processes annual reports. Legal entities must file all annual reports directly with the Secretary of State, Corporations and Charities Division using their Corporations and Charities Filing System.


The Department of Revenue - Business Licensing Service will continue to be the place for businesses to apply for and renew their State and City business licenses.


If you have questions regarding the new process, or how to navigate the new system please visit the Secretary of State’s Office.
